I received this Tokai Love Rock last Friday. SneakyPete sold it to me and he's a great guy to deal with. It only took a week to get here from Japan. BTW it sounds and plays as good as it looks.

LOL. Yeah it's quite a looker. One slight problem is the intonation's off a little on the D string so I'm taking it over to Encore Music to have them do a setup on it.

It depends on the brand. Tokais are probably the best known of the lot so they *generally* tend to be a little pricier than the lesser known brands but it depends on the type of wood, materials, etc.

wow...are guitars cheap to buy in Japan or something? I know a few people in Japan...maybe I should start a business haha

Thanks Cross, I hear you on the Edwards. I kind of hinted to SneakyPete that I also was gassing for an Edwards. :smile:

Very sweet guitar! I'm gassing for a Tokai or Edwards LP, congrats! :food-smiley-004:

Thanks PaulS. I also have a Tokai Springysound and a Tokai Goldstar Sound. I originally bought the Goldstar Sound back around 1985 for $250.00 including the case whereas with the Springysound I traded a Tele clone and some cash for it around 1994 or so at the 12th Fret.

Nice aquisition... they are certainly a lovely guitar... I have two...:food-smiley-004:

Beautiful guitar, Pete has impeccable taste when it comes to geetars. I wouldn't hesitate to do business with him.:smilie_flagge17:

thank you gents. Seems a lot of us have similar taste in guitars, personally I buy what interests me not the latest fashion and I don`t worry about what folks are gonna say about em...or me...as evidenced by these two...
a 1983 and a 1985...FJs by the way...

sneakypete, I always wondered why a a person located in Japan would be posting on a Canadian guitar forum? Are you a Canuck permanently residing overseas or do you just find Canadian folks interesting? :D

All kidding aside, I would love to live in Japan, if not permanently, then perhaps for a few months just to live the experience. Who knows where a couple of weeks will take me once I'm finally done with teachers, textbooks, and dirty looks...

Thanks Auger. I've been a Tokai fan since the mid 80's and I own two other Tokais that are Strat copies. They're nice playing guitars and they're *still* pretty reasonably priced but they're more expensive than they were when they were relatively undiscovered. BTW this one was very reasonably priced.

I agree with you 100% bRian. Pete gave me a great deal on this one and the shipping only took a week. Everything went along very smoothly.
